Pros: Price. Fingerprint sensor is as fast as flagships. Beautiful screen. Honor (Huawei) is supporting their phone with timely security updates. EMUI actually groups a number of highly desirable features found on phones from different manufacturers. Battery life rivals the Moto G3 I replaced. The Snapdragon 616 (and its 200MHz increase over the 615) is plenty snappy and 2 gigs of ram and 16gb of storage is perfectly fine on modern Android. EMUI also lets you take full control of expandable microsd storage and actually move all non-system apps.
Cons: I think 5.2" is the biggest I would want in an ideal situation. It's big.
Other Thoughts: Marshmallow is supposedly coming soon (ASAP would be good). Upcoming EMUI 4.0 is even better. I don't understand the hate for EMUI. The baked in apps are actually pretty good and EMUI groups a number of features from Motorola, Nexus devices, and other manufacturers that are highly coveted and all found in this one Android skin.
I don't quite understand what happened to Newegg. Their CS used to be rock solid. If you had a problem, they would solve it. Seems those days are gone. I've been a customer for 15 years and I've started looking elsewhere first. I no longer feel confident they will hear my concerns, let alone solve them.
Pros: Looks nice I guess, does actually charge
Cons: slow charging
Other Thoughts: It doesn't appear to be Windows Phone friendly (635 or 640) in terms of fast charging. All I get is slow charging with a message on my phone that it could be charging more quickly with a different charger. I topped up my phone a few times and that was all the juice it had out of the box, despite showing the white light which suggests it was close to full.
I don't know. I'm debating how useful this actually is. Seems that investing in backup phone batteries would have been a better idea.
Pros: Modular, super cool, super quiet, looks nice
Cons: I would be lying if I did not find the reviews of DOA or units frying peoples' entire PCs a bit worrying.
EVGA is a solid company that I would hope would have our backs. I've done plenty of business with them in the past and always been happy, without testing their RMA process.
Other Thoughts: This replaced a nice Corsair PSU that was out of warranty. As this was a good deal at the time, I decided to jump. Happy I did. The Corsair was a Bronze and while quiet, it was a hotbox.
The EVGA couldn't be more different. My fan often doesn't even kick-on under load because the thing remains so cool. It's shocking to put my foot next to the steel case and not feel any heat in the middle of summer, where the PSU is.
I would be lying if I did not find the reviews of DOA or units frying peoples' entire PCs a bit worrying. I've owned Seasonic OEMs in the past and never had any issues. Looking at the overall quality of this product, right down to the packaging, it's hard to believe anyone is.
EVGA is also a solid company that I would hope would have our backs.
